Go For A Ride With Tesla's New Autopilot System

Tesla has recently released the most sophisticated driving technology available, an autopilot system available for the Tesla Model S. While it’s not quite a fully self-driving car, it is the closest you are likely to get in the near future. The autopilot system uses 12 sensors, a camera, and a complex GPS to function in traffic.

The demonstration in the video shows just how creepy the new technology is. There is nothing more unnatural than to completely take your hands off the wheel while maneuvering through traffic. But this Tesla does it without a problem and shows that the future of driving is a lot closer than we may think.

GUEST EDITORIAL by Don Bendell

Time to Stand Up and Be Counted!

I am a white, conservative, heterosexual, Christian, disabled Vietnam veteran male. That does not make me homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, intolerant, war-mongering, greedy, a loose cannon, or insensitive. Actually, I am the opposite in most cases, and guess, what? I am normal.

Because I have a brain, I have a concealed carry permit. I read that the United States has more gun owners than any nation on earth, however the USA is ranked number 111th in murders by guns per capita. Chicago has outlawed guns more stringently than most cities in the US and has one of the highest murder rates by gun. I do not need to be clubbed in the head to realize, if your family is killed by a drunken driver, you do not outlaw cars. You blame the driver. When we break down murder rates by city in the US even further, we learn that over 85% of all murders by guns occur in ghettos. I ask myself, why, and clearly know the answer.

My great, great grandfather, Andrew Jewell, fought for the Union Army in the Civil War, and he was also a white conservative. If he would have lived long enough, he would have seen that slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and the like were ALL products of the democratic party, NOT the republican party who included people such as Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I am not responsible for slavery and have fought against racism my whole adult life, because it is stupid. I refuse to be a victim of “white guilt” just because my President, his cronies, like Al Sharpton, and his minions want to inflame racism that was almost extinguished to selfishly further their own agenda and increase the democratic voter base.

Because I have a brain, I also realize and will not forget that over 3,000 innocents were murdered on American soil on September 11, 2001 by radical Islamic jihadists, not Methodists, Jews, or Quakers. I also realize that numerous strikes against Americans since were made by radical Islamic jihadists, not Mormons. I see videos constantly of radical Islamic jihadists in ISIS, al-Qaida, and the like, cutting off heads of innocents, burning them alive, torturing them, stoning women to death for becoming rape victims, and other atrocities. Just because my President is a muslim sympathizer and apologist, I am not going to act stupid to prove I am not prejudiced against muslims. My responsibility as a man is to protect my family, friends, community, and nation; even, and especially when, there are ignorant people in positions of leadership in Washington. That does not make me an Islamophobe. I stated I am a Christian, so I fear no man and no religion.

Because I am a Christian, I do not judge the sexual mores of others, except pedophiles. I am not allowed to. Because I have been a recovering alcoholic for over 46 years, I cannot afford to judge others, as I have enough baggage in my own inventory to concentrate on.

True combat veterans have seen the hell of war and abhor it more than most who have lived protected lives. However, we also have a code of honor which will not be broken, and that is we will risk our lives again to defend our families, our nation, and our homes from tyranny or attack from our enemy. We will not be blinded by the simplistic, hollow, and idealistic notion that evil will leave our doorsteps just because we dislike it. Like most Vietnam combat veterans, I have never been arrested and do not act like a loose cannon or a victim.

Because of these things mentioned about me and my surroundings, I will be involved in the upcoming election. That is because, before political party, I am an American, and I stand prepared to fight to regain America’s greatness which has been lost in appeasement, political correctness, and personal agendas. I stand for this great nation I fought for and refuse to let it go down in flames, and I stand for God.

Who stands with me?

Another Mind Hack
https://www.rt.com/uk/318881-magnets-brain-immigration-religion/
Researchers from the University of York have used magnetic energy to suppress humans’ ‘threat-response’ functions and dramatically change people’s attitudes to immigration.


Psychologists used magnetic force to safely shut down the region of the brain associated with “threat-response functions” and conducted a series of tests where volunteers were asked questions about their beliefs.

Scientists found the people were less likely to have negative views when the magnetic force was applied to the posterior medial frontal cortex, positioned a few inches up from the forehead.

In the study, half of participants were given a low-level placebo-like level of magnetic energy that did not affect their brain, while the other half received enough energy to lower activity in the target area.
Volunteers were then asked to think about death, after which they were asked questions about their religious beliefs and attitudes on immigration.

Researchers from the University of York and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), discovered those whose frontal cortex was temporarily shut down reported 32.8 percent less belief in God, angels or heaven.

Volunteers were screened prior to the investigation to ensure they held religious beliefs.

The participants were also 28.5 percent more positive in their feelings toward an immigrant who criticized their country.

Dr. Keise Izuma said volunteers were reminded about death because people are more likely to turn to ideologies when they think of dying.

“We decided to remind people of death because previous research has shown that people turn to religion for comfort in the face of death. As expected, we found that when we experimentally turned down the posterior medial frontal cortex, people were less inclined to reach for comforting religious ideas despite having been reminded of death,” he said.
Volunteers were asked to respond to negative and positive emotional aspects of religion, in particular to rate their belief in the Devil, demons and Hell, in addition to God, angels and heaven.

Participants were also given two essays to read, both supposedly written by immigrants. One essay was extremely complimentary to the host country, while the other was extremely critical.

Scientists found that when the magnetic force temporarily shut down the ‘threat-response’ part of the brain, people were more likely to have positive feelings towards the immigrant who was critical.

We think that hearing criticisms of your group’s values, perhaps especially from a person you perceive as an outsider, is processed as an ideological sort of threat,” said Izuma.
“One way to respond to such threats is to ‘double down’ on your group values, increasing your investment in them and reacting more negatively to the critic.”

“When we disrupted the brain region that usually helps detect and respond to threats, we saw a less negative, less ideologically motivated reaction to the critical author and his opinions,” he said.

UCLA’s Dr. Colin Holbrook, who was lead author of the report, said the findings were “striking.”

“These findings are very striking, and consistent with the idea that brain mechanisms that evolved for relatively basic threat-response functions are repurposed to also produce ideological reactions,” he said.

Its obvious some people here have been overexposed to some form of horse shoe magnetism as it were..
understand Ed Wu and Hal spent some time at Cern, it could all be a random coincidence of course, nothing to be alarmed about . They are just as crazy as we are, just on the other pole of the magnet smiley

EDIT TO ADD:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

Sentinel and Enterprise News

UFO conference comes to Leominster

Sentinel & Enterprise

Updated: 10/18/2015
By Jon Bishop

LEOMINSTER -- The 2015 Greater New England UFO Conference, held Friday and Saturday at Leominster City Hall, wasn't just about UFOs.

There were speakers with information about Bigfoot. There were discussions about other dimensions. There were talks on demons and on haunted places.

In short, something for everyone.

"At least we don't cater to one crowd," said Willy Miranda, a co-organizer, who also said they wanted to make the conference this year "a little more general."

One of the purposes, said Susan McNeill Spuhler, the other co-organizer, was to get people to meet each other and to network, so they'd know they weren't alone in whatever experiences they'd had or interests they held.

Crowds, she said, consisted of enthusiasts, but there were also people who were just curious.

Like Mary Molina, who attended on both days and who visited because "it's an interesting subject."

"I always like to keep an open mind," she said. "I like the scientific aspect of it."

Science, said Jan Harzan, executive director of the Mutual UFO Network or MUFON and one of the speakers, is one of the chief reasons his organization studies the UFO phenomenon, because it could be beneficial to humanity.

"If these are in fact intelligent beings of greater technological advancement than us visiting us...that (technology) could be put to use to improve our life here on earth," he said, adding that we could use this technology to have "clean-energy sources" or "advanced medical healings, get rid of cancer.

"Because of advances in space technology, he said he thinks "it's going to be quite well-known in 20 years that we're not alone."

"Studying the phenomenon could have some direct spinoffs that could benefit humanity," he said.

But he said MUFON also gathers reporters of sightings and they "help people understand what they're seeing."

As for his own life, Harzan said he saw a UFO when he was 10, an experience he called "very transformative.

Jonathan Wilk, who runs Team Squatchachusetts, said much of the same of his encounter with a Bigfoot.

In 1992, he was working as a park ranger, and while on duty, what he called a "young one" ran in front of his truck.

Which was soon followed by a 9-foot-tall Bigfoot that let out a horrifying scream, he said.

"It happened, and it was done in five seconds," he said.

Before this happened, he had no interest in crypto-zoology, he said.

"I wasn't looking for Bigfoot," he said.

He said he's never forgotten that encounter, and believes the Bigfoot is likely some kind of elusive hominid that merely wants to be left alone.

"I think they want nothing to do with us," he said.

Can These Sensors Scientifically Prove UFOs Exist?
This group of scientists seems to think so.

By AJ Vicens
Mon Oct. 19, 2015 6:00 AM EDT

A group of scientists and academics from around the world has launched a new effort called UFODATA, which stands for UFO Detection and Tracking, to apply some rigorous scientific research to the study of UFOs. This all-volunteer, nonprofit project that includes scientists from the United States, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Chile intends to use scientific data and research methods to advance an issue that has largely been confined to the margins (at best) of the traditional scientific community.

"It's abundantly clear that we're not going to make progress in understanding whatever is causing the unknown UFO reports and sightings without getting the type of data we want to collect," says Mark Rodeghier, scientific director and president of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies in Chicago, and now a UFODATA board member. "More witness testimony, where they fill out a form and tell you what they saw, is not going to help us solve the problem," he says. The problem that Rodeghier is referring to is the frequent, inexplicable sightings of aerial phenomena.

The group of about 15 scientists, engineers, astronomers, professors, and a journalist intend to install a series of automated surveillance stations loaded with scientific research tools at various locations in known UFO hotspots such as those in the western United States and in Hessdalen, Norway. The stations will be used to photograph unidentified objects and analyze the light coming from them in order to learn more about the sources of energy powering them. People have done this sort of thing in the past, but never before in such a coordinated and scientifically rigorous way.

The sensors that the group hopes to build will include several high-resolution cameras fitted with spectrographic grating, which is a method for analyzing the type of light the camera is seeing, and the ways that energy might be affecting the atmosphere around the light source. Here is a video explaining the process. Other equipment includes a magnetometer, used to measure electromagnetic radiation, as well as a Geiger counter and a weather station.

"In this area of science (physics, astronomy, etc.) the best way to learn about something is to get its spectra," Rodeghier says. He compares it to a rainbow, which is a "spectra" of the sun's light. "You can see the elements it's composed of, you can also tell things about its temperature and pressure. There are many, many things that you can learn from a spectra and associated data."

These sensors aren't cheap. Each one will cost between $10,000 and $20,000, the group says, which they're hoping to raise through crowdfunding and other donations.

"UFODATA will rely on crowd funding to finance the stations, allowing the millions of people who take UFOs seriously to be involved in the effort, independent of the scientific establishment," wrote Leslie Kean, an American journalist and the author of UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record. After covering the issue for years, she's also now a board member for UFODATA. Kean announced the project on her Huffington Post blog earlier this week.

The all-volunteer group hopes to raise enough money to build one prototype station, test it, and prove the concept. Next year they plan to raise additional funds, Rodeghier says, after the project is better known and a more robust volunteer staff is in place.

Rodeghier says more reliable and scientific data will not only advance understanding of UFOs, but might also serve to persuade the public at large that this issue merits more serious examination. Nonetheless, the organizers appreciate that "the UFO community and the UFO problem is something that is pretty much looked down upon by what I call the establishment," Rodeghier says. "That includes scientists, big media, and politicians, Washington. All those people—and I'm speaking broadly because there's always exceptions—think the UFO problem, they laugh at it, it's to be ridiculed, and certainly shouldn't be supported and funded. And so yes, this is part of an effort, is to say, 'This problem is serious. It's like any other scientific problem.'"

But even the new organization has had to grapple internally with the taboo of scientific discussion of UFOs. The initial UFODATA team includes four "silent advisors"—two full professors, an attorney, and an astronomer—who "are prepared to lend a hand, but because of the cultural stigma attached to UFOs—or because of a personal preference for anonymity—have chosen to keep their involvement private" according to the group's website.
